How much do you spend?

 

I have never really thought about this in any depth until this year what with the squeeze and all but I have just done a wreckie on my fishing cost for the year and have to say wow HOW MUCH!!!

 

Bottom end gear weights hook swivels trace etc £150

Line four time 300yards of Braid £120

New Rods two £350 both on special

Flotation suite £85 on special

Reel service £65

Total on Gear £770

 

Then there are the trips and I have been on quite a few this year so lets call it £1000 which is close and then there is the fuel and bait ball park figure £300

 

So total spend £2070

 

Fun had priceless

 

So is this, a lot, a little, or avrage How much have you spent?

Huh, tarts. :lol:

 

Favorite drifting reel, 2.5 years old cost £25 quid, ebay, service nil, chuck it over when it seizes

 

favorite boat reel for the biggies cost £25 quid as they couldn't repair me seized one due to lack of service Assume 2.5 years before that one seizes.

 

sold,one 9/0 bought for £100 thirty years ago, sold for £100 this year. B)

 

two number braid boat rods, second hand £ 75 quid each both re-rung, now two seasons old, so that works out cost effective. B)

 

One rod ring on me uptider £15, i moaned about the cost of that, i can tell you.

 

Braid, none required this year.

 

Boat trips, loads but don't think about the cost, so that's cheap then. Compared with the missus and her 'meat factory' trips. (henlow)

 

weights, make me own from recovered (church)lead, not really but still make me own.

 

booms, 100 in a pack 3 way swivels, last about five years.

 

Sliders, electrician's cable ties, pence from wicks.

 

have been known to buy hooks and even expensive shads.

Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.


New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.

Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.

Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.

new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.

Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..

Not admitting to it as the wife is computer literate.........but, a similar amount to you N4llie!.......I do love collecting fishing tackle though B)

Eating wild caught fish is good for my health, reduces food miles and keeps me fit trying to catch them........it's my choice to do it, not yours to stop me!

Bought three new boat rods and a couple of reels this year.

 

And a new estuary rod and reel.

 

That was just for starters on sea-tackle and boat trips.

 

 

Took up fly-fishing for trout, so had to kit out fully (as well as fishing fees etc)

 

 

Oh, and a couple of new trotting rods, and some other coarse tackle along with memberships, and all the other bits of tackle and bait.

 

 

I'm a bit scared to tot it all up really!

Its a good job the tackle industry does not rely on me for a profit. I think about it a lot . . . but have not bought anything significant tackle wise in 5 years . . . I seem to spend about £50-£75 each year on restocking hooks, line and trace/end tackle material, I have a bucket full of leads that are ???? years old.

 

In the summer I buy half a pound of rag per river bass sortie, winter fishing is almost exclusively with wholesale bought unwashed squid as bait . . . Hay I bought 25 lugworm last time out this winter :P . . . . and my boat costs me around £2000 per annum to moor, fuel and maintain :huh:

Not a lot the last few years:-

 

kayaks cost a lot to begin with then pretty much zero running costs; I don't see the sense in spending big cash on fancy rods or reels that will get dunked in saltwater when £20 cheapo rods and a couple of old reels are more than compensated for by being sat above fish.. :)

 

Sight fishing summer Cod will quite happily take a hook with a bit of cheap wool attached as readily as the ££££ lure from ££luremaster.com; as long as thats lure is being dropped where there are cod..

 

 

Under a £100 for this year i'd guess.

My philosophy entirely.

 

A good day's bass fishing (or any other sort of fishing) - priceless.
